I’ll come right out and say it, the first Sonic the Hedgehog movie had no right being as good as it was. I was expecting something stupid and fun and instead it was good and fun.
So of course we’re getting a sequel. And while I think the symmetry in having Knuckles wait until a third movie (because there’s no way you can get the lock on technology to work with a movie so we can’t really have him wait until a 4th) would be cool, I think this is a good move.
Here’s the official word from Paramount Pictures:
The world’s favorite blue hedgehog is back for a next-level adventure in Sonic the Hedgehog 2. After settling in Green Hills, Sonic is eager to prove he has what it takes to be a true hero. His test comes when Dr. Robotnik returns, this time with a new partner, Knuckles, in search for an emerald that has the power to destroy civilizations. Sonic teams up with his own sidekick, Tails, and together they embark on a globe-trotting journey to find the emerald before it falls into the wrong hands.
From the filmmakers behind The Fast and the Furious and Deadpool, Sonic the Hedgehog 2 stars James Marsden, Ben Schwartz as the voice of Sonic, Tika Sumpter, Natasha Rothwell, Adam Pally, and Jim Carrey returning, alongside new additions Shemar Moore, with Idris Elba as the voice of Knuckles, and Colleen O’Shaughnessey as the voice of Tails.
